Luminary Leaders connects youth leaders with formal and informal opportunities to lead within the Association on teams, focus groups, task forces and more, creates opportunities for youth leaders to network with one another and provides recognition for youth who have already demonstrated outstanding leadership and service.  Luminary Leaders is a program of the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

All those who register will be added to our growing network of youth leaders and those meeting the criteria for recognition will be awarded. 

Youth are invited to join at any point throughout the year.  Recently bridged youth may complete the registration to earn recognition for their service as a youth, as well as be connected with young adult opportunities.
